New York Style Cheesecake

One of my all-time favorite TV shows is Friends. They stayed on the air for ten years and I never get tire of it.
Remember episode where Rachel and Chandler stop and eat all the stolen from their neighbor’s mail-order cheesecakes ?
This is exactly as I always imagined those would taste, something which makes us want to stop everything, help ourselves to another generously portioned slice, and just moan in bliss. I served it with a blackberry sauce, but honestly, this needs no accompaniment and I think it is even better plain. The texture is absolutely perfect – creamy, thick, smooth and it slices beautifully. And more as you may have noticed there is No CRACKS….Yeah!
Suffice it to say, my search for the perfect cheesecake recipe ends here.

For no cracks on top, this cheesecake can thank to special “water bath” bake, and this is one of the secrets to a truly creamy cheesecake. Because using the water bath method provides a more even,  slower heat source than the direct heat of an oven and this is important for baking foods like cheesecakes, which tend to crack from the heat of the oven. To bake using a water bath, you will need a baking pan that is large enough to hold a springform pan (or other baking dish wrapped in foil to avoid any water from seeping into the pan which would make the cheesecake crust too wet), and is also large enough to allow for water to surround to mid of the springform pan.


  • 6 eggs,room temperature
  • 8 tablespoons (one stick) unsalted butter,room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups sour cream,room temperature
  • 4 8-ounce packages cream cheese,room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. Generously butter the inside of a 10-inch springform pan.
  3. Cut two large pieces of foil and lay them on your work surface in a cross.
  4. Set the springform pan in the middle and fold the edges of the foil up around the sides of the pan.
  5. The foil gives you extra protection against water getting into the pan during the water bath step.
